Sargans is a locality in Switzerland.
Located in the northeastern Swiss canton of St. Gallen, Sargans is well-known for its castle, which has an age preceding the founding of the Swiss Confederation in 1291.
Transportation-wise, Sargans is an important regional node.
The A3 national motorway ends at Sargans; the portion north toward St. Margrethen and the portion east toward Landquart, Chur, San Bernardino and ultimately Bellinzona are all part of the A13 national motorway.
Trains heading north toward St. Gallen, east toward Chur and Ticino, and toward Austria, all pass through Sargans.
Buses heading toward Liechtenstein also leave Sargans.
